Description

Discover the key ancient sites in Athens during a unique one-day experience filled with beautiful landscapes and archaeological adventures. Upgrade your tour to include a private guided tour with a licensed English-speaking guide, authorized to enter all the archaeological sites with you, or alternatively explore the sites at your own pace without a guide. Start the tour with pick up from your hotel in Athens where you will meet your driver and set off on your full-day tour. First, head over to the Acropolis for a tour of the most significant parts of this archaeological site. Walk uphill through the grand marble entrance and marvel at the astonishing construction of the Parthenon, a splendid temple built by the Greeks and dedicated to goddess Athena. Gaze down at the modern city of Athens from the hilltop, exploring all sides for panoramic views of the old town and its picturesque buildings. See the ancient Theater of Dionysus, the Roman Temple of Zeus, and the world-famous Herodeion theater. Then, visit the spectacular Acropolis Museum which houses a wide collection of original sculptures. Marvel at the glass-made floor which reveals the ruins of ancient buildings underneath. On the first floor, admire marble masterpieces and impressive views of the Acropolis Hill, the Lycabettus Hill, and the rest of the city. Next, take a drive around the most popular parts of modern Athens. Take a look at the extraordinary venue for the first modern Olympic Games in 1896, the Roman temple of Zeus with its imposing pillars, the National Gardens, the Changing of the Guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the outstanding 19th-century University of Athens, the Academia, and the National Library. Complete your tour with a visit to the archaeological site of Kerameikos. This unique, extended historical site served as the ancient cemetery of Athens. While walking around the site you can take a look at the ruins of the ancient defense wall that marked the city’s boundaries. Finally, visit the National Archaeological Museum, founded in the 19th-century, which hosts the richest and biggest collection in Greece.
